On this dark, cloudy, rainy day, i thought it appropriate to expand on one of the key issues that I stand for: better communication between Council and our community. Clear away the clouds.
Quality information needs to be more accessible and effective two-way communication between Council and our community actually needs to happen.
* generic responses are simply not good enough if our community has taken the time to research, participate in consultation or present to council.
* get Q&A documents out for all major issues affecting our district and make these easily accessible - we shouldn't have to spend hours online trying to find information.
* communicate constantly and at the right time.
The existing breakdown in communication between Council and our community needs to change urgently. We live in a special place, and we all have a right to be better informed on issues and decisions that affect our home.

Simon Bridges says "The reality is if you're not in work, education or training, you're going to be languishing in a dole queue, and the evidence is potentially for a long time". Do you agree with this policy? Should parents be fined?
